Described by the New York Times as "the architect who shaped Fifth Avenue", J.E.R. Carpenter designed 1170 Fifth Avenue in 1926 and it is the pre-eminent example of his genius. Perfectly located in New York's desired Carnegie Hill neighborhood, this classic pre-war coop rises on the northeast corner of 98th Street and Fifth Avenue. There are 60 apartments in this beautifully maintained and fully-staffed white-glove building. Additionally, there is a gym, bike room, private storage, and the building is pet friendly.
Apartment 15A is on the northwest corner of 1170 Fifth Avenue and boasts truly remarkable views from two exposures. It is the rare apartment that can boast views of New York's Central Park; rarer still is the ability to see the ENTIRE park - north to south. The discerning buyer will appreciate the quality of the workmanship in the recent complete renovation of this 8 into 7 room apartment. Particularly notable is the state-of-the-art Central Air Conditioning System throughout, the new windows, baths, and kitchen. The apartment has three bedrooms (one currently used as a library), very high ceilings, a large formal dining room, living room with wood burning fireplace, large windowed eat-in-kitchen, as well as a washer and vented dryer. The grand gallery leads to the Central Park-facing living room; two other rooms face the Park from this very high floor home. The dining room also has beautiful views with two exposures. This apartment offers everything (and more) that a buyer looking for a home on New York's most prestigious avenue - it is filled with light, has extraordinary views, and combines pre-war charm with contemporary amenities.
1170 Fifth Avenue permits 50% financing and there is a 2% flip-tax. 1170 Fifth Avenue is most conveniently located, surrounded by some of New York's most famous museums, schools, restaurants, and, of course the city's crown jewel - Central Park.
